Do dogs sleep out of boredom?
"A lot of dogs will sleep as a default, if they don't have something to do," Jill Sackman, a clinician in behavioral medicine for BluePearl Veterinary Partners, tells The Dodo.
But, of course, they also sleep when they're actually tired.
On these days, he's likely sleeping out of boredom, and is eager for stimulation.
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
Safe: Some Vegetables.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.
Even a plain baked potato is OK.
Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
